Apple have a track record in making unusual – occasionally unusable – mouse, but in the Magic Mouse they’re perhaps onto a good idea.
The Magic Mouse is wireless, it connects to your Mac via Bluetooth, and will work from up 30 metres or so away from the computer.
In addition to being clickable, it incorporates some of the gesture-based commands as seen on the iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac notebook trackpads. Essentially, the entire top surface area of the Magic Mouse is a trackpad, allowing you to:
Click: simply click or double click anywhere on the top surface
Right click: enable as a two-button mouse by going into System Preferences
360-degree scroll: brush one finger in any direction on the surface to pan
Screen zoom: hold down the Control button on the keyboard and slide your finger forwards on the mouse
Swipe: use 2 fingers to go back or forward pages in your web browser, or to browse photos
All of these options can be enabled, or you can choose to turn some off, which you can control by going into your Mac’s System Preferences.
To use the Magic Mouse you’ll need a Bluetooth-enabled Macintosh computer, running Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later, with Wireless Mouse Software Update 1.0.
